Hogan Knows Best

Hogan Knows Best is an American reality documentary television series on VH1. The series debuted on July 10, 2005 and centered on the family life of professional wrestler Hulk Hogan. Focusing on the Hogans' raising of their children, on Hulk Hogan's attempts to manage and assist in his children's burgeoning careers, the title of the show is a spoof of the 1950s television series, Father Knows Best. After the cancellation of Hogan Knows Best in 2007, a spin-off entitled Brooke Knows Best debuted in 2008, ran for two seasons. Terry "Hulk" Hogan is represented on the show as a protective and somewhat strict father with regard to the opposite sex being anywhere near his daughter, Brooke. On more than one occasion, he has schemed ways to spy on her. However, because of a competition involving finding the right boyfriend for Brooke, Terry wanted to win so badly that he encouraged Brooke to be together with the young man he chose for her; the young man was Harry Smith. His career as a wrestler has taken its toll on his body, including weak knees and an artificial hip replacement, though he still works out in order to maintain his physique.

He has claimed, on the show, that he had his teeth knocked out six times and his nose broken twelve times. In an effort to conceal his baldness, he wears a bandanna or a hat. Linda Hogan is Hogan's wife. An ardent animal lover, she temporarily took a baby chimpanzee into the house in one episode, considered adopting it. Between her and Hulk, she is the more lenient parent, she has serious reservations about Hulk returning to the ring, about her son contemplating a wrestling career. Brooke Hogan is Hulk and Linda's teenage daughter, who produced a new song to kick off her career, signed a $1.3 million contract when she turned eighteen. Hulk's nickname for her is "Brooke-tini." On the show, she made crude remarks about Harry Smith's appearance and the two never hit it off. Nick Hogan is Hulk and Linda's son, two years younger than Brooke. Nick is always up to antics. Although Nick and Brooke have an amicable relationship overall, there are moments when they take pleasure in getting one another in trouble.

Nick aspires to be a professional wrestler, though his father has encouraged him to take acting lessons in order to improve his sense of showmanship. Nick was a professional drifter for Dodge until July 2007, he got his Formula-D license in 2006. Brian Knobs is half of the Tag team The Nasty Boys. Knobs comes to stay with the family, much to Linda's dismay, he comes to babysit Nick and Brooke when Hulk and Linda go on romantic trips. Brooke and Nick refer to him as "Uncle Knobs." He is seen being joking and sarcastic. The series premiered on July 10, 2005 with a 1.9, representing the largest audience for a VH1 premiere at that time.

Hogan declined. However, after noticing the success of pop stars such as Hilary Duff and Britney Spears, Hogan accepted a deal to do the show as a way to help promote daughter Brooke's singing career. In the episode "Hulkamania Forever", Hulk mentions that the family has no source of income as lawyer and music studio bills in excess of $200,000 had come in recently. Hogan explains in his 2009 autobiography My Life Outside the Ring, that paying unionized camera crews to film subjects continuously until something telegenic or dramatic occurs would prohibitively expensive, that as a result, shows such as Hogan Knows Best are "soft-scripted", follow a regimented shooting schedule that allows for typical work-related considerations such as lunch breaks.

When filming soft-scripted shows, the subjects are given a scenario by the producers to act out an exaggerated version of something to be encountered in their real lives, are informed of the outcome, possible "beats" in between, instructed to improvise, which Hogan says is a version of what he did as a professional wrestler. According to Hogan, this would result in behavior that members of his family would never exhibit in real life, as when his son, Nick tossed water balloons at neighbors from a window, or when his wife would wake up early to apply makeup and do her hair before camera crews arrived to film shots of the couple sleeping, it was reported that taping for an additional season of Hogan Knows Best halted in the summer of 2007, before it was det
